“Nice place with good food, but management can't handle the crowd”

This restaurant is located in a lovely location by the Lake of Chavonnes, and the traditional Swiss food is good (but at full Swiss prices). We were however there on a very nice and therefore busy day. The owner kept grumbling about being too busy and seems to be very annoyed by having too many customers to deal with. There were no queue, just people sitting at the available tables. They may want to reduce the number of tables if they can't cope.

Usually go to Lac des Chavonnes during the ski season and always enjoy the stunning food and scenery.
In the summer the place transforms itself into a must stop for trail walkers.
The terrace offers great views on the Lac and nearby mountains while the food is adapted to the season with less cheeses and more salads. The fantastic steak aux Morilles is luckily still on the menu.
Fantastic place winter and summer.

This is a lovely restaurant right on the lake. We took the train from our hotel (Royal Alp) and went to walk on the mountain to see the three beautiful lakes on La Forclaz. Although the restaurant was fully booked, the chef went out of his to give us a place. The food is lovely, especially the grill. But the amazing view of the lake and mountains is worth it.

We had a lovely lunch sat on in the sunshine. Wonderful food, good scenery, attentive service and the price was not too bad either. Slight issue with the bill but resolved without any problems. In our top 3 of mountain restaurants.

Lovely place for relaxed autumn lunch. Easy walk from bretaye, with a good uphill bit on the return to work off the dessert. Generous serving for la chasse season. Not cheap, but worth it.
